Wow, we had a huge response to our Annual Photo Competition to celebrate the 3rd Birthday of the Coffs for Kids website.

I want to say another special mention and thank you to Emma (Emma Rhoades Photography) and Christy Bonham (Manager, Genesis Toormina) for being my two guest judges.

    The courses are well structured and the students are regularly assessed on the basis
    of examinations and assignments. While this was a major challenge 10 years ago, changes in technology (communications technology in particular) make this a sensible strategy today.

    ‘In the past we’ve had enquiries from people considering moving
    to Monaco who have decided against it as they feel they should pay their taxes in the
    UK, despite the fact that many have already contributed hugely financially to the
    British economy – a lot of the new enquiries are people who have considered Monaco in the past and now see no reason why
    they should contribute more when Members of Parliament
    are doing all they can themselves to minimise their tax bills and claim all they can on expenses – which are funded by the taxpayer.

    Even if it becomes possible, it is usually subjected with a high
    interest rate. There a lot of different
    reasons for a person to want to refinance their home loan. The

    regardless of your credit.
